Song Premiere: Sara Bareilles, “Stay”

Videos by American Songwriter

Tomorrow, pop songstress Sara Barielles will release a new EP, Once Upon Another Time, recorded in Nashville with her Sing Off buddy Ben Folds, who served as producer. We’ll have an interview with Barielles for you soon — in the mean time, take a listen to the slow and soulful, string-laden track “Stay.”

“Sara is the real thing — a producer’s dream,” notes Ben Folds. “She opens her mouth in front of a mic and you’re done. That’s not just because she’s one of the best singers alive, but because the songs that feed that wonderful voice are brilliant. Oh, she writes those too. She submitted herself to quite a brave process during the EP we recorded together. It’s quite ‘warts and all’, few takes, no manipulation. Very honest. Well, look, she doesn’t have warts, that’s what I found out. Look as closely as you like, she just sings her ass off.”
